There is no wood better to kindle the fire of holy love than the wood of the cross, which Christ used for his own sacrifice of boundless charity. ~~Saint Ignatius of Loyola!!
Thanks be to God!!!!
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. ~~Saint Therese of Lisieux~~
No one, however weak, is denied a share in the victory of the cross. No one is beyond the help of the prayer of Christ. His prayer brought benefit to the multitude that raged against him. How much more does it bring to those who turn to him in repentance. ~~ Saint Leo the Great
~~Saint Mother Theodore Guerin~~
How precious the gift of the cross, how splendid to contemplate! In the cross there is not mingling of good and evil, as in the tree of paradise: It is wholly beautiful to behold and good to taste. The fruit of this tree is not death, not darkness, but light. This tree does not cast us out of paradise but opens the way for our return. ~~Saint Theodore the Studite~~
